Open up this “Word Window” and you will be amazed by what you see! But what is a “Word Window”? A book, of course. Look inside and get ready to play dress up. Try something on and imagine what you can be. A red hat with a yellow badge? We can be firefighters! A white coat and a stethoscope? What could you be? What do you do? Taking care of sick people is what doctors do. A yellow hard hat and a saw turns us into fix-it people. This charming picture book will have you dreaming about who can be and what you can do. Questions and activities at the end of the book give young readers the chance to continue to explore and imagine.
